plastic (all kinds) do not get poured into molds, plastic is not fluid enough to be poured into molds. commercially plastic is injected into molds at enormous pressures
plastic parts are usually produced through the following procedures
machining from solid chunks of stock
and I don't know how plastic pipes are made but I suspect it is through some type of extrusion process
the point I am trying to make is that you will be wasting your time trying to pour plastic into a mold, there are however polymer resins available that have been designed to be poured into a mold however these are expensive and the amount of equipment needed to use these successfully makes this less than ideal
